Varicose Vein treatments by Total Vein Wellness

What is Phlebectomy?

Phlebectomy involves removing bulging varicose veins using cosmetic minor incisions (3mm incisions). Local anesthetic is used to anesthetize the skin and the procedure can be done in the clinic. The incisions are so small that no sutures are needed to close them.

Although our vein treatment specialists always strive to provide the highest level of relief in the least invasive manner, sometimes conservative treatments are not enough. With more than 20 years of experience in vein treatment, Dr. Jerome Naifeh and his team at Total Vein Wellness can recommend the more effective program possible for your individual condition and lifestyle needs. If your vein disorder warrants it, Dr. Naifeh may suggest that you undergo ambulatory phlebectomy to treat varicose veins.

What to Expect After Varicose Vein Surgery

After your varicose vein is removed, you will go home wearing a bandage and possibly a compression stocking temporarily. Some potential after effects of the phlebectomy may include:

  • Allergic reaction to the local anesthetic
  • Local numbness
  • Minimal scarring
  • Slight bruising

Most patients are able to return to normal activity the day after a phlebectomy, although we always recommend rest for at least 24 hours.
